The plan to expand fish habitat has to do with the proposal to build twin water tunnels moving Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta water to Southern California.
A UC Davis study suggests that project as planned could kill a lot of fish. So state and federal water officials are looking at increasing the duration and frequency of flooding in the Yolo Bypass so that fish could live there.
Yolo County Supervisor Jim Provenza points out - that's also where rice and tomatoes are grown.
"The impacts on our agriculture and economy range from minimal if they do a smaller project to catastrophic if they do what's currently on the table."
